About Covid-19 vaccinations at the Dugdale Centre

The NHS is currently delivering the largest vaccination programme in its history, with three different delivery routes for the COVID-19 vaccine. These are:

  • Hospital hubs
  • Vaccination centres – large sites convenient for transport networks
  • Local vaccine services – provided by GPs and pharmacies

Now that we have a vaccine that has been confirmed as safe and effective by the MHRA, we are rolling it out to those groups who the independent JCVI* have decided need it most when the supplies are available to us. To help to deliver the roll out, the community services at North Mid has partnered with the Dugdale Centre to set up a new large scale vaccination centre.

You can now book your COVID-19 vaccination appointment if you are:

  • aged 30 or over
  • clinically extremely vulnerable
  • a frontline health or social care worker
  • eligible for Carer's Allowance

In the following ways:

For everyone else, the NHS will contact you when it’s your turn so please don’t seek a vaccine before then, as the centre will not be operating on a “walk-in” or “on-request” basis.

We do not anticipate any disruption to those who live or work near the site.

* Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation – the independent committee of experts which advises UK health departments on immunisation.

Dugdale Centre - Frequently asked questions

Total results: 9
  1. Does that mean I can visit the centre to get my vaccine?

    When it is the right time people will receive a letter either from their GP or the national booking system inviting them to make an appointment. We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but we would ask people not to come to the centre without an appointment. You can go online to book an appointment at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or contact 119 free of charge if you are eligible.

  2. How many people will be visiting the centre each day?

    The NHS is working extremely hard to be able to begin providing the vaccine as quickly and safely as possible. However this is a huge logistical challenge and the number of people we can invite for vaccination will depend on the level of vaccine stocks we receive. At a maximum, the centre has been designed to deliver just approx. 1000 vaccinations per day.

  3. How will you keep people safe? Is it a good idea to bring many people to one place to get the vaccine?

    We have carried out internal works to ensure that the centre can operate in a fully COVID-secure way. Those attending will be reminded to sanitise their hands frequently, wear a facemask (unless exempt) and maintain a 2 metre social distance.

  4. How will you manage the increased traffic on local roads?

    We are very aware of the importance of being a considerate and responsible neighbour. The centre is well connected via public transport and we would anticipate that many people will choose public transport to get to their appointment. However we are working with the London Borough of Enfield to keep traffic moving including working to avoid any highway works whilst the centre is open where possible.

    The council has allocated a car park which will be free for those visiting for a vaccination to use. Signage is in place to ensure that centre users are directed to utilise this car park when attending the vaccination centre.

  6. What do I need to bring to my appointment?

    Please bring your booking reference number with you  when you come to your vaccination appointment  and please bring a face covering and wear this at all times unless you cannot wear one for a health or disability reason. 

    Please help us to see you more quickly by having the following information ready:

    • Your NHS number
    • GP details
    • Details of your emergency contact.  

    If you are eligible as a health or social care worker please ensure you bring official proof of employment with you. For example a work ID card, wage slip or letter from your employer dated within the last 3 months. If you book an appointment and do not bring official proof that you are eligible you will unfortunately not be vaccinated when you come to your appointment.

  7. What will be the opening hours?

    Our current planning assumption is that we would be providing vaccinations between 8:30am and 7pm, 7 days a week. It may be that operating hours may be reduced but we do not anticipate the centre being open beyond those hours.

  9. Will there be lots of extra security around the centre to protect the vaccine?

    We have put plans in place to ensure the stocks of vaccine are protected and are working closely with The Metropolitan Police. However, these measures will not impact on local residents or businesses.
